This is an opportunity to rent one of the unique cottages sympathetically restored in a superb gated courtyard in picturesque and romantic Maer Village, one of the finest examples of rural England. The cottages are in the grounds of historic Maer Hall which dominates the village and dates back to the 12th Century. The present stone house, built in 1680 overlooks a small lake, the source of the River Tern, which is all that remains of a very large Ice Age lake once covering the whole of the valley.
In the 18th century the famous landscape designer Capability Brown altered the lake in a scheme of pleasure grounds. In 1802 the estate was purchased by Josiah Wedgwood II who employed the famous landscape gardener John Webb for further design works. In the early 19thCentury, Charles Darwin was a frequent visitor; he proposed to Josiah’s daughter Emma in the Hall and they married at the adjacent St Peters church in January 1839.
The location of the cottages is unrivalled, with stunning walks available through the Maer and Staffordshire countryside. It is in an excellent location for daily commuting to all areas of the North West and within close proximity to the major road networks: -Keele 6 miles, Market Drayton 8 miles, Stoke-On-Trent 9 miles, Crewe & Nantwich 14 miles, Stafford 16 miles and M6 J15 just 6 miles.
Approaching the village from the A51, the cottages can be found on the right, opposite the junction into Hadden Lane. The gated courtyard fronts the cottages with parking available within the courtyard or in a communal car park with a pretty and pleasing walk through the communal gardens to the cottages.
This stylish three bedroom semi detached cottage is spacious and superbly furnished and is entered through a shared porch.
